I'll be going to the town center (I fondly refer to as South Shore) to accomplish a few things. Good thing everything I need is clumped together in one complex, and only separated by parking lots here and there. I purposely schedule my things for a one-stop run.
First Stop: POST OFFICE - to mail some piano pieces I bought online for my dad. I went to http://www.greatscores.com and they let you pay by paypal and download the pieces right away. I was able to print them out instantaneously. I'm sure dad will be happy, I got him his favorite Mancini's and other things. THE PINK PANTHER, BABY ELEPHANT WALK, BEN (yes, Michael Jackson's "Ben"), FASCINATION (by Marchetti). I'm still waiting for TWO FOR THE ROAD, I got it from http://www.sheetmusicplus.com. Uhm...err...I haven't ordered it yet. I plan to order a Mancini collection too, but I'll wait til November. Funds-ah-low!
2nd Stop: HARDWARE STORE - To buy hubby a hard hat because he will be a Rescued Chilean Miner for Halloween. I just need to affix one of our portable drawer lights to the front to make it look like a miner's hat (since I don't know where to get one at this time). He's gonna be wearing some Oakley sunglasses, and a harness around his body (thanks to the orange furniture lifter laying around in our garage), longsleeves layered on top with an old shirt that would say "Mision Cumplida". I'm excited now.
3rd Stop: DRY CLEAN - To drop off some winter stuff like scarves and sweaters (and yes, my favorite black peacoat) that have been laying inside my dry clean basket. There's no delaying further as we are beginning to need them now. Brrrr!
4th Stop - CRAFT STORE - To pick up a wide ribbon and black fabric paint because I'm going to make a sash for myself. I'll be "MISSED" UNIVERSE for HALLOWEEN. Yes, "Missed". Just to spoof out a beauty queen. I'll be wearing an old formal and re-use a birthday crown made of silver plastic and fake gemstones. I need to cover the "Happy birthday" with foil. I'll curl my hair and wear heavy make up, smoky eye and mascara and red lipstick and all. Then wet my eyes so the mascara will smear and drop like tears. I was running out of creative Halloween ideas where I wouldn't spend a lot. So I hope this works.
5th Stop: TJ MAXX - because I need to return a shirt that doesn't look right on me, and a pair of pants that's too lose for hubby. They are victims of impulsive shopping last Saturday. In return, I will buy the accessory organizer that I so need. It's a plastic/fabric panel that you can hang on a hanger that has many tiny plastic pockets on both sides.
6th Stop: ROSS - to buy a curtain rod. We badly need one for the master bedroom because our we do not have a door to the bathroom, just an arch that opens to his and hers sink, and a glass shower on one side.
7th Stop: GROCERY - to buy a pumpkin as I promised my sister I would make my 9-month old niece her first one this halloween. I am not going to join any pumpkin carving competition this time. Too lazy. I also felt bad when I fell Second last time, which was really okay if the one who won first place obviously used a store-bought template. =( I also need to pick up some phyllo dough because I'm craving for and planning to make BAKLAVA this Sunday. Well, in honor of my late mother-in-law whose Bakalava really rocked, so I heard. I'll probably have to make hubby taste-test so I can adjust my recipe accordingly. And oh, I also need Veggie trays and Dip for our Halloween potluck at work on Friday. And CANDY, CANDY, CANDY for Sunday's neighborhood trick or treat .
My massage place is in the same complex but I doubt if I'll even have time to get my October massage. Good thing it rolls over to the next month.
Then tonight, I am going to Check out Zenni's new site! Because it's time for me to change my eyeglasses again. And ZenniOptical $6.95 Rx Glasses for me are the best practical options out there. Imagine being able to change your eyeglasses each time to match your wardrobe and whole look. That's what I do. And I'm not splurging! I heard that Zenni now has the best tryon: Frame Fit and I'm going to try to take advantage of that! But that's not until I've done my errands for the day and go online tonight.
I'm already tired just telling you about it. But it's exciting. I like it when it's happy kind of tiring. Not the sad things.
Enjoy your Halloween, dolls!
